George RR Martin
James S A Corey
Orson Scott Card (yes I know people have issues with him, but I still like his books)
I like historical books as well. Any book by historian David McCullough is worth reading. I love the same types of movies as books though I also enjoy a wider variety of movies then just SciFi and Fantasy. I'll eat almost any food type thought I'm especially fond of Seafood. I love lobster and fish etc.... I also really like Sushi.
I love music and have a varied and eclectic taste. (Don't care for country or rap)

As for Movies and Television, I also like a lot of different things.
I enjoy American History and like documentaries about that.
I also like almost any SciFi show that is on. I'm a big fan of the works of Joss Whedon, so anything he puts out I'm probably going to love. I am a huge fan on Firefly, and I think Buffy the Vampire Slayer may just be my favorite TV show of all time. Other shows I've recently enjoyed:
